Yankees Head Trainer Gene Monahan Honored for Simply Being Awesome

For the past 35 years, there has been only one head athletic trainer in the New York Yankee duguout wearing a skin-tight, belly-bearing Yankee polo shirt and that man is none other than New York State Athletic Trainers’ Association Hall of Famer Gene Monahan. Most well-known as the guy who sprayed bug spray all over Joba Chamberlain in last year's ALDS in Cleveland, Monahan's talents go well beyond properly executing a spray bottle. Said Yankee Captain Derek Jeter, "Monny has the softest hands in the business. I can lay out on the massage table spread eagle and let Gene-O rub those magic fingers all over my body for hours." A-Rod added, "When I'm not yearning for Derek Jeter or Jessica Canseco to rub me down, Monny is the first person I look to." It is ever apparent that Monahan is one of the most respected members of the Yankee organization and for simply being a super awesome dude, Ricky Vaughn 99 salutes you, Gene Monahan!
